Swinging of the Pendulum
media is preparing the American people for war and the escalation
of the U.S. government's rhetoric indicates that war maybe only
important to look at the historic swing of the pendelum. Terrorism
is the A-bomb of the poor. The West is facing a slave revolt.
But the metronome has been going on for some time. The ancient
Middle East was a military free for all and when the Persians
invaded Greece the free for all went West. Then the West hit
back with Alexander and the Romans.
Then the East responded with Christianity and Islam. Then the
West hit back with the Crusades and the modern era of colonialism
and imperialism. Now the East is hitting back again. Islam and
China are challenging the West. But Islam and China are not
friends. Yet the Western idea of Heroic Materialism has run
was simply never enough....
the battlefield is the entire planet. The new Global civilization
will be determined by how this current conflict is resolved.
Personally, I feel there can be no political or economic unity
without some kind of spiritual unity. Ecumenical of course.
This is the gist of my writings and this message becomes loud
and clear in Two Short Stories.
bless you all...
